Starting and Shutting Down


 

Once you have successfully installed NetFlow Analyzer, start the NetFlow Analyzer server by following the steps below.

Starting NetFlow Analyzer

Windows:


Click on Start > Programs > ManageEngine NetFlow Analyzer > NetFlow Analyzer to start the server.

Alternatively you can navigate to the <NetFlowAnalyzer_Home>\bin folder and invoke the run.bat file.

 

Linux:

Navigate to the <NetFlow Home>/bin directory and execute the run.sh file.

 

When the server is started, a command prompt window opens up showing startup information on several modules of NetFlow Analyzer. Once all the modules have been successfully created, the following message is displayed:

 

Server started.

Please connect your client at http://localhost:8080

 

where 8080 is replaced by the port you have specified as the web server port during installation.

Starting as Service

Windows:

If you have chosen the Start as Service option during installation, NetFlow Analyzer will run as a service on Windows.

Linux:

  1. Login as root user.
  2. Navigate to the <NetFlowAnalyzer_Home>\bin directory.
  3. Execute the linkAsService.sh file
  4. Then execute the command /etc/init.d/netflowanalyzer start

This starts NetFlow Analyzer as a service on Linux.


As far as Fedora / SUSE is concerned, please open the mysql-ds.xml file under the server\default\deploy directory and change the

<connection-url>jdbc:mysql://localhost:13310/netflow </connection-url> to

<connection-url>jdbc:mysql://127.0.0.1:13310/netflow </connection-url>


and restart the NetFlow Analyzer server.

Please follow the instructions below,

  1. Navigate to /bin folder and backup (copy) linkAsService.sh to a safe location.

  2. Open file linkAsService.sh in a editor and look for the following lines,

    [code:1:f5099fc2e0]for i in {0,6}
    do
    ln -s -f $initvar /etc/rc$i.d/$stopwith
    done
    ln -s -f $initvar /etc/rc5.d/$startwith[/code:1:f5099fc2e0]


  3. Edit the above lines as follows, suffixing rc.d folder after /etc/ folder,

    [code:1:f5099fc2e0]for i in {0,6}
    do
    ln -s -f $initvar /etc/rc.d/rc$i.d/$stopwith
    done
    ln -s -f $initvar /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/$startwith
    [/code:1:f5099fc2e0]


  4. Save the file.


  5. Shutdown NetFlow Analyzer.


  6. Execute linkAsService.sh and start NetFlow Analyzer using the command \" /etc/init.d/netflowanalyzer start \"
